Unique live performance is also a trademark from Zhaoze. Apart from drums, guitar, bass, and keyboard, Guqin—one of the most traditional music instrument in China, hand sonic, sampler and effects are used in gig frequently. These additions not only bring innovation to the live environment, but also provide the band greater freedom to create.
The name of “Zhaoze” is an analogy of human’s nearby nature until the home of the spirit — our innermost secret. Both of them are similar in some ways: fed up yet attached to; fixed yet mobile; ruined yet vital. This could be the best explanation to Zhaoze’s music.
